Carbuncle is an acute purulent-necrotic inflammation of several hair follicles as well as sebaceous glands, with extensive necrosis of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Carbuncles can develop as a result of the spreading of an inflammatory process from one follicle to the other with simultaneous damage of several follicles as well as the confluence of separate follicles. The appearance of carbuncles promotes metabolic disorders (in diabetes mellitus, obesity), decreases non-specific reactivity of the organism as well as noncompliance of sanitary-hygenic norms of life and in the factory.
In our clinic, “Laser scalpels” are used to perform carbuncle incisions. The course of the post-operative period is practically painless, healing occurs faster as compared to after routine surgical incisions. Therapeutic lasers, which speed up wound healing as well as provides a better cosmetic effect, are used in the post-operative period. When applicable, treatment using medications is accompanied in combination with ILT (Intravenous laser therapy).
